coin packagingUSS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72)

Honoring the undying devotion to preserve freedom, this uniquely-shaped challenge coin is dedicated to the USS Abraham Lincoln and her crew, both of which stand ready to fight.

As the 2nd ship to bear the historic 16th president’s name, the USS Abraham Lincoln and her crew have injected his dedication of fighting for “the people” into every mission and exercise.

Able to sustain over 5,000 crew members, she has ushered powerful U.S. forces into battle for operations such as Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Southern Watch, and Iraqi Freedom. The supercarrier boasts a massive 4.5-acre flight deck to launch up to 90 fighter jets and helicopters into action. Short-range anti-air and missile weaponry bulk up her fight. Free from the confines of land, she is a floating airbase able to answer the call for air warfare anywhere.

Minted in antique bronze and highlighted by bold enamel, this challenge coin honors the crew of the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). The obverse of this distinctive coin features the ship slicing through the sea beyond the boundaries of the coin and into your hand. One of her E-2C Hawkeye early-warning aircraft can be seen speeding towards its next mission. The ship’s motto, “shall not perish,” – plucked from the last line of the Gettysburg Address – stands boldly at the bottom of the coin. The reverse displays Lincoln’s image encircled by brilliant blue enamel, with detailed ends of the stern and bow peeking past the coin’s edge.
